Let’s honor the Irish tradition and pair our cabbage with boiled bacon. Since not all of us are feeding a family, use the ratios below to adjust serving size. Cut cabbage stores wonderfully when wrapped.

Hudson Valley Harvest Uncured Natural Bacon
Salt, pepper and apple cider vinegar to taste
(Use 6 strips of bacon, 1 onion, and ½ cup water for every two pounds of medium-sized  cabbage.)

Chop the bacon, cabbage, and onion into 1-inch pieces.
Fry the bacon and onions, drain all but about 2 tablespoons of bacon fat.
Add cabbage and water.
Cover and simmer about 15 minutes


Prefer to Sauté?
Follow instructions above with these changes:
Slice cabbage into thin strips.
Don’t add water.
Sauté instead of simmer cabbage. 


Hudson Valley Harvest Uncured Natural Bacon
Thick cut, with no nitrites or nitrates except for those naturally occurring in celery powder. Heritage breed pigs are pasture-raised on Sir William Farm in Craryville, NY or Sugar Hill Farm in Pine Plains, NY.
